Going to LA

Gentle Reader, right now I am preparing for my trip to LA. I do hope to see some of you this Sunday at Mysterious Galaxy. This it their Redondo Beach location (2810 Artesia Boulevard, Redondo Beach, CA 90278). I will be there Feb 10, 2:30 pm paired up with New York Times bestselling young adult author Ally Carter for hijinks. It should be a lot of fun and I am hoping my crazy well-dressed readers represent (respectfully and with tea, of course).

I love this new store, it's an amazing venue, and I can't wait to have my very first event there. I'm also super excite to meet Ally Carter, I understand she's a hoot. Outrageousness, ho!

Quote of the Day:
"I can’t help but to write, I have a inner need for it. If I’m not in the middle of some literary project, I’m utterly lost, unhappy and distressed. As soon as I get started, I calm down."
